Lots of work and planning went into this place and the restaurant and bar/big-screen area is just great! Add a beautiful view over the river and a rock pool below and you have a winner!

Apart from its proximity to several mines and therefore its convenience for business travellers to those sites, this resort has very little to commend it. The area is pretty with the lodge nestled in a valley of small mountains through which a river meanders. Waking up to a sunrise in the bush with the accompanying symphony of bird calls is... More

A nice place to stay at when working at Xstrata/Glencore. Not so sure if it is a good place to stay at for a breakaway as it is busy during the week with people from the mines. The food is buffet style and avarage, the accommodation is also avarage often called rustic. As I said, good for work stay over.
